I am left handed and 15 years ago I trained for 1 year at a kickbox gym. I've switched to orthodox because of the confusing whit other members and drills. I feel comfortable in Orthodox stance whit my movement and feel like my defence is more on point. But I fear that I am wasting my time and gonna be a one handed fighter. Now, 15 years later I've joined a boxing gym and started Orthodox but thinking about switching to southpaw. The reason that I switched to orthodox because the drills that were teaching is much easier to follow because the drills are setup for right handed fighters. And I don't have to reverse everything in my head. What is very exhausting for me every time and complicated before a new exercise or drill. Should I stay orthodox or do I make a big mistake as a left handed person not to be southpaw and having the advantage that everyone talks about. And how big deal is it that I give up my powerhand, because it's now my lead hand. I think that beeing southpaw can benefit, but you really have to have a trainer that got a lot of experience and the tools to be effective whit that stance. Don't get me wrong my trainers have a lot of knowledge. But the are orthodox trainers themselves. And it's not just reversing the exercises, but everything is different on all aspects. The attack phase, defending, infighting. Right now, I am training for 2 weeks as a southpaw. My footwork is kinda messed up, complicated drills are very confusing. But to have my strong hand in the rear feels good. I still miss mine left liver shot and left hook. Against tall opponents I suffer because I am now in the same line whit my jab hand and getting 'out jabbed'.
